Wilders wants charges brought against minister who refuses to disclose the cost of Â the Islamic invasion
Anti-Islam politician Geert Wilders is hoping to use a 150-year-old law to start legal proceedings against Integration Minister Eberhard van der Laan for failing to answer the Freedom Party’s questions on the cost of immigration.

Mr Wilders’ Freedom Party asked the minister to work out the cost to the country of immigrants on an individual basis. Ministers are constitutionally obliged to honour MP’s requests for information, and Mr Van der Laan promised to provide Mr Wilders with answers. He duly provided the Freedom Party with 30 pages of raw data, but refused to translate the information into the kind of cost-benefit analysis the Freedom Party wanted. “We do not keep accounts on the value of human beings,” said Mr Van der Laan.
Speaking on Dutch breakfast television on Monday, Mr Wilders said that five Freedom Party MP’s have now written to the speaker of the Lower House calling for an investigation. The Freedom Party wants to have charges brought against the integration minister based on legislation dating from 1855, which says that ministers have to abide by the constitution and provide information.
Meanwhile, Forum, the Institute for Multicultural Development, commissioned its own study on the cost of immigration last month from economist Peter Nijkamp at the Free University in Amsterdam, in an attempt to take the wind out of the Freedom Party’s sails. Mr Nijkamp said he was amazed such data should be seen as a taboo.
The Essence of Geert Wilders speech:
IsraPundit has the text of Geert Wilders speech,
Let no one fool you about Islam being a religion. Sure, it has a god, and a here-after, and 72 virgins. But in its essence Islam is a political ideology. It is a system that lays down detailed rules for society and the life of every person. Islam wants to dictate every aspect of life. Islam means ’submission’. Islam is not compatible with freedom and democracy, because what it strives for is sharia. If you want to compare Islam to anything, compare it to communism or national-socialism, these are all totalita rian ideologies.
Now you know why Winston Churchill called Islam ‘the most retrograde force in the world’, and why he compared Mein Kampf to the Quran. The public has wholeheartedly accepted the Palestinian narrative, and sees Israel as the aggressor. I have lived in this country and visited it dozens of times. I support Israel . First, because it is the Jewish homeland after two thousand years of exile up to and including Auschwitz, second because it is a democracy, and third because Israel is our first line of defense.
This tiny country is situated on the fault line of jihad, frustrating Islam’s territorial advance. Israel is facing the front lines of jihad, like Kashmir, Kosovo, the Philippines , Southern Thailand, Darfur in Sudan, Lebanon , and Aceh in Indonesia . Israel is simply in the way. The same way West-Berlin was during the Cold War.
The war against Israel is not a war against Israel . It is a war against the West. It is jihad. Israel is simply receiving the blows that are meant for all of us. If there would have been no Israel , Islamic imperialism would have found other venues to release its energy and its desire for conquest. Thanks to Israeli parents who send their children to the army and lay awake at night, parents in Europe and America can sleep well and dream, unaware of the dangers looming.
Many in Europe argue in favor of abandoning Israel in order to address the grievances of our Muslim minorities. But if Israel were, God forbid, to go down, it would not bring any solace to the West. It would not mean our Muslim minorities would all of a sudden change their behavior, and accept our values. On the contrary, the end of Israel would give enormous encouragement to the forces of Islam. They would, and rightly so, see the demise of Israel as proof that the West is weak, and doomed. The end of Israel would not mean the end of our problems with Islam, but only the beginning. It would mean the start of the final battle for world domination. If they can get Israel , they can get everything. So-called journalists volunteer to label any and all critics of Islamization as a ‘right-wing extremists’ or ‘racists’. In my country, the Netherlands , 60 percent of the population now sees the mass immigration of Muslims as the number one policy mistake since World War II. And another 60 percent sees Islam as the biggest threat. Yet there is a danger greater danger than terrorist attacks, the scenario of America as the last man standing.
